Tokyo Black is the second brand at YoHo. A robust porter, well balanced between the malt and the hops. The complex chocolate and roast flavours of dark specialty malts are combined with a floral and slightly spiciness from Perle hops.

330ml can from Masuyo’s in Tokyo. Poured into a shaker half pint. Jet black with a modest tan head. Burnt malt, leather and coffee aroma. Burnt coffee, soy sauce and malt on the palate with a hint of dark fruit and star anise. Dry but quick finish. Fairly well-balanced. Not a bad porter.

Un nez de mélasse et de noix de coco assez intense pour le taux d’alcool, j’aurais misé plus haut juste avec les arôme. En bouche il y a une belle onctuosité mais une légèreté à la fois, une souplesse je dirais. Les saveurs sont comme les arômes avec un côté lacté encore plus présent. Une bonne amertume torréfié vient calmer les sucres brièvement alors que ceux-ci refont surface à chaque gorgée. Belle surprise.

Can, at Cardinal. A dense, beige head leaves curtains over a dark brown, unclear body. It’s roasted and meaty on the nose, with some dark rye bread. There’s burnt malts, meat, roasted notes, dark wort and rye bread in the flavor. Full-bodied and soft on the palate, with a lasting finish. A flavorful one, but overall I find it single tracked and sort of dull, and a bit too wort-like, without being sweet. 141101

Dar japoniško krafto. Labai sausas nors ir porteris. Nors 5 laipsniai, bet alkoholis išsimuša. Bet 20 balų.

Wow.. Awesome surprise. I dont remember when I had so smooth and fullbodied brew with so low ABV. Lovely roasted malt background introduces awesome choco performance. Covered by pleasant not too pushy hop kick that gives additional fruity dimension. Bic licorice, bit milky. Moderate sweet with moderate to light bitterness. Thumbs up

Ideāls porteris, maigs vienkāršs un perfekts. Viens no labākajiem proteriem ko esmu dzēris :)

Can. Black colour with minimal dark brown head. MIlk chocolate, cacao and roasted malts on aroma. Taste is very sweet with vanilla, cocos, cacao, bit smoke and milk chocolate. Light bodied with soft carbonation, watery and metallic mouthfeel. Short and dry, bit ashy finish with chocolate. Sweet, faceless and mediocre porter.

Can 35 cl. Pours a clear black with a reddish tint and a creamy, beige head. Sweet, subtle roast. Medium body, soft carbonation, again very sweet, vanillaish molasses. Easygoing but a little to the sweet side. 200115
